Introducing the newest release from Thug Entrancer "Death After Life". Spanning five tracks of bubbling, minimal juke inspired soul, "Death After Life" finds Laser Palace co-founder and Hideous Men member Ryan McRyhew developing the John Carpenter inflected tones of previous releases into a concise brew of crisp percussion and warm synth runs. Get it and go deep.
New split release from Docile Rottweiler A.K.A Denver's Stephan Herrera (of Alphabets / Phonebooks fame) and SFTSTPS, Berlin transplant/ former BDRMPPL member Nicholas Houde. "Docile Rottweiler" moves four tracks deep into a terrestrial cave from which distant steel drums and diluted baselines chase your skull into a rave attended by cats in latex body suits. "SFTSTPS" slides through the life cycle of a cassette recorder possessed by screwed R&B stylings and bubbling synth lines, weaving a dense stream of disembodied MCs and delicate field-recordings.
We are pleased to announce the release of "Indiana Freemason Everything" by Chicago's very own Peter Speer. Beginning with "Magnetic Resonance Image" the release unwinds from within the gentle ebb of an oscillation coaxing the stereo-field into a plain of virtual linearity , before being deftly called into place. Side B concludes with "Temp Bells" a cinematic work for electronic percussion propelled into an abyss of horror inflected suspension. Minimalism of the highest order.
The new release from California based synthesist Candescent "Port Nacelle", finds its way through two slow burners of subtle analog drift. Port Nacelle realizes some new form of furniture music, a terrestrial presence lazily inhabiting the border between sculpture and composition.

Ready to Live is the sound of exorcising ghosts and demons onto tape where they can be heard and not merely dismissed. In doing so it's not an attempt to escape life. It's the expression of an appreciation of life through the classic alchemy of transmuting dark times into positive vibes. Ready to Live is the kind of record designed for winding down from being on the edge.
